The next major tourism investment in the Dubrovnik region, the Kupari resort, is underway. The former military resort has remained destroyed since in the Homeland War in the early nineties.
The site contains five hotels, including a hotel which was constructed in the early 1900s; the new plans are that all these hotels will be destroyed to make way for a five-star resort with a Marriott as the centre piece.

And now work has begun to clean the whole site in preparation for the construction of the one of biggest hotel investments in Croatia in the past century. “I heard some loud explosions in the morning and the ground shook,” explained a resident of nearby Mlini to The Dubrovnik Times.
Kupari was purchased by the Avenue Group based in Austria on a 90-year lease in the spring of this year.
